Publish form to a new page

    Hi! First off, I tried to do a search and found a few thread about publishing forms but they are for "members only".
    Anyways, here is my question:
    1. Can I create a simple form for employers to submit job forms so that the forms can be published and/or append to a Wordpress page? E.g. if an employer visit my website, can he/she fill up a form with the job description. Then this form is automatically published as a Wordpress page for potential job seekers?
    Form will have fields like "Employer name", "Address", "City", "Tel", "Job description" and "email"

    We don't have a way to append to pages, but Gravity Forms can create WordPress posts by default. This would allow you to publish blog posts in a category called Jobs or something like that, and have them show up on your site. You could also use a directory plugin like this one:
    http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/gravity-forms-addons/

    I used that plugin for a Job Board recently and it worked well to list the entries that had been submitted without needing to create WordPress posts.

    Thanks David. Appending to a page is important. It seems another gravity form add-on called, "Gravity + Custom post types" may be able to do this. I would like to try this out. Is there a way you can provide me with a one week trial? I don't want to purchase something that I won't use at all.

  4. There is no trial version of Gravity Forms. You can certainly update a page (append content to a page) using the gform_after_submission hook and the WordPress function wp_update_post.

    It is not a feature of Gravity Forms (append to an existing post) but with the hooks and filters which are built in, you can accomplish it. It will require PHP code be added to your theme's functions.php file. If you have any more questions, please let us know before you make your purchase decision.
